Products must differ from other countries’ one, therefore Taiwan’s design may has the opportunity to be outstanding in the world. Merely based on Western culture to develop industry design, it’s hard to compete with other countries. Instead, focus on traditional culture to discover ancestor’s wisdom will makes our designs more unique and attractive and competitive. The more technologies develop the more work and living stress grows. Many people tend to peruse the life style of simplicity, nature, and retro, and it agrees with the life philosophy of our traditional culture, like happiness, peace, and good fortune.
Taiwanese temples are close to people’s life and full of rich local culture relic. Our study discusses on the temple and symbolic images within them to discover the culture meanings. Through the questionnaire investigation and analysis, we try to find out how volunteer describe happiness, peace, and good fortune with some words and what is the feeling about symbolic images of Taiwanese temple.
But the localization design means the combination of traditional images and fresh feeling instead of copies of traditional pattern. We propose some design samples which applies the symbolic samples of Taiwanese temples to express the images, like happiness, peace, and good fortune. Through the second questionnaire investigation and analysis, we try to find out whether the volunteer can feel the same image of design proposals as which the symbolic images they feeling. The results can offer reference evaluation of design idea generation for other researchers and the product designers who use symbolic images of Taiwanese temple as creative inspiration to enhance the popularity in market.
